Shining a light on abilities

By Life@TheU
This October, faculty and staff are invited to celebrate all abilities and learn more about supporting an inclusive environment for people with disabilities.

Through collaboration and interdisciplinary work, faculty and staff at the University of Miami provide exceptional service and preeminent care to University’s valued students, patients, and community. There are many UM employees who work together in different ways while recognizing the unique abilities of their colleagues with disabilities. Together, University employees of all abilities are essential to creating and fostering a workplace where everyone has an opportunity to add value to the work that we accomplish together while feeling valued.

As part of Disabilities in the Workplace Awareness month, we’re introducing you to a handful of University of Miami employees who work tirelessly to advance the mission of the University while inspiring others to look beyond their disability and see the abilities that fuel their successes.

Looking for ways to get involved and advance the conversation? View a calendar of events happening near you this month. Learn more about diversity and inclusion initiatives at the University of Miami.
